. the recent revelations by edward snowden have underscored what many others have been trying to issue, and that's now very well documented that the federal government is capturing and storing every american's phone calls, e-mails, outside of all mail going through the usps, library uses, commercial transactions. our cars are reporting on us, and most of us are carrying around a portable spying device than the federal government can turn on and eavesdrop and record any conversation going on in the vicinity. in short, every activity of every aspect of every one of our lives every day is being captured and being stored in gigantic databases where it can be mined anytime they like to build a dossier against anybody. yet despite this extraordinary violation of our privacy, as the recent boston bombings showed, it's not securing us any safety. bob, your book, "neither liberty nor safety." fear ideology and the greg -- growth of government, demonstrates this is a false tradeoff between freedom and security and you show how the u.s. is increasing interventions, reduce our civil and economic l

leaker edward snowden himself. these new revelations today may contradict president obama's recent assurances, remember he talked last friday, about nsa surveillance programs. >> a general impression has, i think, taken hold not only among the american public but also around the world that somehow we're out there willy-nilly just sucking in information on everybody. and doing what we please with it. that's not the case. >> let me bring in three pinuated voices. ben ferguson and erol lewis. david soroda, i want to begin with you. my first question, when we look at edward snowden you hear it from different camps. you hear traitor. you hear patriot. here we are. we are still clearly talking about this and debating this. is what snowden did in the long run good for americans? suroda? >> absolutely. i think he's a hero. i think today's story is vindication of the fact he's a whistle blower. this story that was in the "washington post" today about the government breaking the law thousands of times a year in just one part of nsa, not the whole nsa, just one part, breaking the law thousand
. even more shameful or justiciable as what is happening with edward snowden it is absolutely shocking that they had manning locked up in solitary confinement torturing him three years and there is no outrage in the u.s.. as far as edward snowden is concerned, ee shameful he has to run to hide to countries like russia or venezuela that is hardly a beacon of freedom. certainly he cannot stay in the u.s. anymore. >> host: a continuing theme in "totally incorrect" is the relationship with that gsa. what do you think of them? >> those that go to work, you say where they get the people that joined in the nsa? where do they round these people up? the same type of people from the bottom of society lowlife middle aged people speaking to would drop whenever they we're doing previously to put on a tacky uniform to go to the neighbors 30 laundry and serve a useful purpose in the process. this little bit of power that they have got holding it over others makes your life miserable and withal bureaucracy once created, it grows. bureaucracies like that, this is true of all of washington you have to k

? if that's going to improve matters dramatically? and secondly, edward snowden, saint or sinner, he brought this debate out onto the public domain. did he do a good thing? or did he do a bad thing? >> so, there's always a tension between technology and law. technology races forward, sometimes undercuts laws. we've seen that with copyright and some other places. the risk with a lot of technology companies is that we've accelerated technology forward, ten years ago when the patriot act was first passed, there was no concept that you could record every telephone call. today that's technologically possible. whether edward snowden himself is a good guy or bad guy, i think the debate is something that is very valuable for us to be having. to say, technology has advanced, law is ten years old, do these laws make sense with what the technology is today. and so i'm hopeful that the obama administration and law enforcement will think through whether or not this is something we are comfortable with, because it's a real threat to businesses like ours that are fundamentally in the business of trust. >>

"the post" says most of the
to do with the disclosures of edward snowden. >> i called for a thorough review of our surveillance operations before mr. snowden made these leaks. i actually think we would have gotten to the same place. >> yeah, he called for these a long time ago. he would have gotten to the same place, which means that ed snowden has ruined the president's surprise. >> speaking of surprises, yet another one from edward snowden today. this latest one courtesy of "the washington post" reporting on thousands of instances where the nsa violated privacy rules put in place for the americans, the organization -- the same americans they're trying to protect. joining me now for our daily fix is crystal izza, kate taylor and nbc capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell. kelly, good to visit with you right now. in the most charitable of terms, what the nsa was doing, at least according to the "washington post" reporting was sloppy. we learned of more than 2700 of these incidents where unauthorized records were collected. how does this impact the debate? >> well, one of the things we're finding out is tha

% of the private contractors, people who do what edward snowden used to be, are going to be fired, surely we can't not say that edward snowden has had a massive impact in all this. i wonder if he's in russia somewhere kind of happy with the aftermath of his leaking. >> whatever you think of edward snowden, he's started a conversation in the country. the leaks he provided led to -- have led to lots of newspaper articles. they led to a vote in congress in which the majority of the democrats in the house said they wanted to stop this nsa meta data program. snowden has certainly had impact. we'll never know what he's thinking every day. we're seeing this conversation continue to go. a lot of politicians are concerned about civil liberties, bringing this up. i think the president sort of tried to quiet these concerns last friday with his press conference, but i think this will continue to be an issue, where he's confronted with new details from snowden. you also see members of congress like diane feinstein, who at fist was like this program is great and defending it, who are now less equivocal about
